US report lays out apocalyptic consequences of North Korean electromagnetic pulse attack on America

A North Korean electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack on the US could wipe out up to 90% of the population through starvation, disease and societal collapse, a new congressional report has warned.

An EMP attack, which does not require the precision of a nuclear missile, could wreak havoc across the US, Peter Vincent Pry, a nuclear strategist formerly with the CIA, testified before a congressional Homeland Security subcommittee.

Mr Pry served as chief of staff to the congressional EMP commission and was one of the authors of the October report.
